Yoga pose for deep relaxation – yoga nidra

yoga pose for deep relaxation - private yoga West Hartford
“Yoga nidra is the aware sleep. In this lies the secret of self healing.”Satyananda Saraswati

Yoga nidra is an essential part of my one-on-one therapeutic yoga sessions – it’s a great yoga pose for deep relaxation. In my private West Hartford yoga studio, I work with students that have:

  • Injuries
  • High blood pressure
  • Osteoporosis
  • Arthritis
  • Immune disorders
  • Emotional distress

Yoga nidra, restorative yoga poses and guided visualizations teach students to relax. As we clear away layers of stress, there is space for the body to come back into balance and do what it does best—heal naturally.

Yoga nidra—or yogic sleep—is the space right before we drift off to sleep. It is the space where connecting to our true selves occurs. We tap into our inner beings and an ever-present stream of health and well-being.

Each student is on their own personal journey inward. After a student settles into a pose, I guide them with words and visualizations. In these private yoga sessions in West Hartford, students receive the perfect combination of guidance and space.


  • One-on-one yoga

    I teach one-on-one therapeutic, gentle, restorative and prenatal yoga sessions out of my private studio conveniently located at 91 South Main Street in West Hartford. That’s just two blocks from Blue Back Square and the center of town.
